Is it possible to change the URL of a RSS feed in NetNewsWire? And if so, how?

I am using NetNewsWire ver. 3.2.15

The feed URL can only be edited if Google Reader sync is off.

Select the feed in the left column and press ⌘I to bring up the feed info window. Click on the triangle next to the URLs entry and you will get a text box that will allow you to edit the feed URL. There are a bunch of other setting there that allow you to do things like specify how often a particular feed is updated, how long articles are kept, etc.

That field is not editable. – Alex Aug 5 '11 at 20:25
@Alex It is for me, at least for the feed I checked. – KeithB Aug 5 '11 at 20:58
What version do you have? – Alex Aug 5 '11 at 21:32
I'm using NetNewsWire 3.2.15, and I can edit the Feed URL field. I have always been able to do so, and it works as expected. Is this possibly related to having Google Reader sync enabled (I don't)? – Kevin Reid Aug 6 '11 at 5:14
@Kevin Reid That is indeed true, if the sync is disabled, you can edit the Feed URL field. I just tested it. – Alex Aug 7 '11 at 6:58
